JEANIOUS HACKS

#5 The fringed hem

Here’s a jeanious hack to give your jeans a bang-on-trend update. Alex, our denim department concept designer is here to show how to fringe the end of your jeans.

You will need

  • Measuring tape or ruler
  • Chalk
  • Sharp scissors
  • Jeans: original 100% organic cotton jeans like Kimomo are best.

Step 1: Mark them

Mark a straight line across your jeans, around 10cm up from your hem is good.

Step 2: Cut them

First carefully cut off the hems to create a raw edge. Then cut up the length of your jeans and stop at your chalk line. Repeat spacing the cuts 1cm apart to create your fringe. Pro-tip: pre-mark the fringe lines in chalk first if you want your fringe super neat and even!

Step 3: Wash them

Wash your jeans! This helps to create the curly raw edge fringe effect. 
Eco tip: Wash on the shortest cycle, at the lowest temperature and with other items. P.S. No softener!

Step 4: Wear them

Your new customised jeans are ready to be styled up.
